We have implemented a 6-week Adults BASICS course in Ballet, Tap and Jazz and, when there is sufficient interest, Flamenco. The BASICS courses are especially designed for students with little or no dance experience. The BASICS courses are really designed to break things down to the bare basics. Starting with concepts like posture, the names of the different positions, and how the steps relate to each other.
Each class builds on from the class before it (hence why term enrolment is required) teaching the student the core fundamentals of that style. We do not allow casual attendance in this class as attending class sporadically will not enable students to really understand the basics, and move up. Additionally, when you start a BASICS course you can be comfortable and assured that there are many others in the class in the same boat as you, starting a dance class for the very first time, with no previous dance experience. Please remember that everyone learns differently and at a different pace. It is important not to compare yourself to others, and just be patient with yourself, and trust in the process.
After completing a Basics course, you should have the skills to give you the confidence to join an Absolute Beginners class, or a standard Beginners/Elementary Class. You can choose to do a BASICS course as many times as you like, until you feel confident enough to progress to another level. We advise that you speak to your teach regularly to touch base on your progress and see when you will be ready to move up.
Great studio north of the river! Love Ashanti’s classes.
Great classes for beginner up to advanced, big range of genres, heaps of fun and great exercise, lovely talented teachers and the end of year performance is a highlight of my year.
Friendly staff with a healthy mix of making us work for it whilst also being encouraging and funny. A great experience that welcomed me back into dance.
I cannot thank Gianni enough for our amazing experience!! 30 friends with barely any formal dancing experience rocked up and put our pride and safety in his hands! What a fun activity!! I’m so glad I chose to hold the beginning of my night with him at the studio!! We learned some Salsa, Cha cha and applied it to every Dirty Dancing song we could!! We literally had the time of our lives!! I can’t wait to go back!
I have loved all my classes at The Dance Workshop, I find them both challenging & fun, with proper warm up and excellent workout!
With such a range of dance styles and experience levels, there’s something for everyone. I love the fact it’s targeted to adults looking to start something new that they’ve always wanted to do, or get back into a style they used to dance as a youngster!
Great, friendly atmosphere with people who are passionate about dance. No judgements. I feel like I can let loose, be myself and dance my heart out!!
I’ve been doing in the absolute beginner class with Priscilla now since Term 1 & have loved every second. She is so personable & helpful. I am looking forward to continuing on & hopefully becoming more graceful than the baby elephant I am now 😉
